LEAD has begun its third year of Advance, our professional development program for women. Through Advance, LEAD is addressing the gender gap in the C-suite and boardroom by equipping emerging female leaders with the tools and confidence they need to take their careers to the highest levels. Advance participants are diverse, representing business, nonprofit, and government organizations.
An important part of Advance is connecting with a mentor, and we are currently seeking volunteers (men and women) to serve as mentors. Mentoring would involve attending two early evening events: a mixer on June 12 and graduation on November 14, as well as at least six phone or in-person meetings with your mentee. LEAD will provide a suggested structure for you and your mentee. The focus and frequency of meetings, as well as the duration of the mentoring relationship, would be up to the mentor and the mentee.
